Early Morning House Fire

At approximately 1:26 am this morning, CKFR responded to a personal medical alert at a residence in the 6400 block of Tracyton Boulevard NW. The first unit to arrive on scene observed flames coming from the roof of the home and quickly upgraded the call to a structure fire. Additional CKFR units as well as crews from Bremerton Fire responded. Due to the size of the fire and its extension throughout the home, firefighters were forced to extinguish it from the exterior.
Several hose lines were used to confine the fire to the residence and prevent extension to a nearby home.
The occupant was initially thought to be trapped inside, but was thankfully located safely sitting outside.
The County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause.

Fish Rescued During House Fire

CKFR was dispatched at 11:41 am to a residential structure fire in the 1900 block of NW Green Glen Lane.
While en route they received information that everyone was safely evacuated from both sides of the two-story duplex.
Upon arrival, flames were visible. The occupant that had been home stated the smoke detectors alerted her.
The fire was under control quickly and the County Fire Marshal was dispatched to investigate the exact cause. Navy Region Northwest and Bremerton Fire provided mutual aid.

Brush Fire On Steep Embankment

The Olympic View Court Fire was dispatched at 11:28 pm. The fire is on the waterfront hillside. It is contained, but still smoldering and access to it is very difficult. A small landslide also occurred, further hampering efforts.
CKFR made the decision to deploy a technical rescue team in an attempt to extinguish the brushfire.
Tech Rescue team members from Poulsbo Fire, Bainbridge Island Fire, Navy Region Northwest, and South Kitsap Fire responded.
The fire is not large in size, but is on near vertical, high bank waterfront with heavy vegetation.
